The wet chemical sol-gel processing paves the way to the versatility and ease of liquid film deposition techniques for a variety of inorganic and hybrid coating materials. Liquid film deposition [1] in general involves the application of a liquid precursor film on a substrate which then is converted to the desired coating material in a subsequent post-treatment step.
